On the 2022 UCP Leadership Race

It's January 2022 and Alberta is in trouble with premier Jason Kenney facing a rebellion from conservatives because he's unable to stand against his own red tories, the media, and the federal left. As a result Kenney is probably going to face a leadership vote in which everybody loses because neither he nor any of the insider contenders for his job have sufficient credibility with Albertans to overcome media support for their invisible but beloved NDP.


A note to Jason Kenny

Dear Mr. Kenney:

You're under attack from within your own party - and the other side's happily cheering these people on. So now what?

Reverse course: pull a Trump, tell the delusional to suck eggs, and get on with it.


The 2019 MacKinnon Report: healthcare recommendations

My impresson from the MacKinnon Report and Recommendations is that the panel was told to find ways to cut the overall budget, interpreted this in part as an instruction to find ways to justify an already made decision to cut the budget, and decided that recommendations based on comparisons to per capita costs for comparably named programs and services in other provinces would satisfy a political agenda they disagreed with while leading the politicans behind it to destroy themselves.
